Nadia Essex rose to fame as the matchmaker who whips celebrities into shape before sending them out on a string of dates.

Lady Nadia Essex has been DROPPED from Celebs Go Dating after being outed as a sick internet troll.

Celebs Go Dating bosses have suspended the 36-year-old from filming the show for the rest of the series, after the petite dating expert was revealed to have set up secret social media accounts to troll people online.

A TV source told The Sun: “Nadia has been suspended from the show until further notice and won’t be appearing on the rest of the series.

“Bosses have made the decision following an investigation into Nadia’s use of social media.

“She was found to be setting up fake accounts to troll certain users – which is something that won’t be tolerated.”

Nadia has fronted the show since it began back in 2016, and had co-hosted with Eden Blackman until he quit the series over their ongoing feud.
